ROCHESTER — Stanley Cup champion and American Hockey League Hall of Famer Dick Gamble has died. He was 89.

The AHL's Rochester Americans announced his death Friday after learning from his family he died Thursday. Gamble had been living in Pittsford.

Gamble won the Stanley Cup in 1953 as a member of the Montreal Canadiens and captured the AHL's Calder Cup three times with Rochester. The left wing is fourth on the AHL career list in goals (468) and fifth in points (892 points).

Gamble had 41 goals and 41 assists in 195 regular-season games over parts of NHL eight seasons with the Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks and Toronto Maple Leafs.

In March of 1999, Gamble had his No. 9 retired. The six-time postseason All-Star would later be inducted into the American Hockey League Hall of Fame in 2007.

“The entire Rochester Americans organization is deeply saddened by the loss of Dick Gamble,” said Amerks and American Hockey League Hall of Famer Jody Gage. “Dick was someone who helped bring the Rochester Americans to prominence in the AHL and was instrumental in building this great franchise."

In honor of Gamble, the Amerks will wear helmet decals for the remainder of the 2017-18 season and a commemorative patch will soon be added to their jerseys for all remaining home games. A special in-ice logo, mirroring that of the jersey patch, will also be placed behind both nets for the remainder of the season.

A Moncton, New Brunswick, native, he was inducted into the AHL's Hall of Fame in 2007. Last year, a diver found Gamble's AHL Hall of Fame ring at the bottom of Canandaigua Lake. Gamble didn't know he had lost it. His son Craig last year told the Daily Messenger's news partner News 10NBC he had lost the ring about three years before when it slid off his hand while swimming, and he asked for AHL approval for another ring to be made, without telling his father.
